Lexis Advance Review

Overall Satisfaction with Lexis Advance

My firm uses Lexis Advance to perform legal research. Typically the platform is only accessed by the attorneys in the office, but sometimes it is also accessed by a paralegal. We have access to annotated statutes, cases, and practice guides. The practice guides are very helpful in not having to reinvent the wheel.
  • I like the annotated statutes. That is typically where I start my searches.
  • I seem to find more relevant case law on Lexis than I have through Westlaw.
  • Their training and research attorneys are very helpful.
  • We did have some billing questions once and they weren't quick to respond.
  • Going outside of your subscription costs an arm and a leg.
  • They have a lot of reps that don't offer the same package pricing.
  • It's had a positive impact in finding more cases that are on point for my cases.
  • It was actually cheaper than their competitor.
  • The natural language search is better than the competitor.
I switched from Westlaw because the new Lexis Advance platform seemed more intuitive and I found more cases on point than searching in Westlaw.
Support has always been helpful and easily accessible. They are available day and night, which is great for practitioners who work outside of office hours.

Would you buy Lexis Advance again?

Yes

Well, when I deal with an issue that I have not researched before it would be the place I begin that research. Lexis Advance is also helpful if you save cases to folders and then you can go back and see if that case is still good law or if there's been new citing cases.
